In hastily fashion, 2 days prior to E3, Microsoft has already let loose some of its tricks it plans to reveal at the show through several posts and video advertisements.


This short advertisement below, posted up by an international gaming site gives everyone a first look at a new Slim Xbox 360 console coming out.



This upcoming model won't only be smaller, but is also shaped differently with a more angular design on the front and back to give more of an X shape. Not only this, but it's said to come with WiFi built-in, saving people from buying a costly adapter for what should have been a standard feature to begin with. The internal HDD capacity will also be larger at 250GB as standard.


What will be particularly of interest is where Microsoft plans to position the Slim X360 price wise. Stay tuned; we'll find out soon enough.


Oh, it was also briefly indicated that Microsoft's much anticipated Project Natal will officially be called Kinect once it hits mass market. We will hopefully know by this time tomorrow what the exact pricing and shipping dates will be for Kinect when Microsoft gives its E3 keynote speech.
